Re: What did/does the Borg say to the kazon whenever they cross paths?

And I guess the camouflage abilities of his ship may have caught their interest.

And he knew 4000 languages.

Though they only knew English, even when we saw them assimilating alien races.

Re: What did/does the Borg say to the kazon whenever they cross paths?

That's an interesting question?

Is there a Borg Language or do all the drones know all the languages of all the assimilated species ipso facto all drones speak whatever language which they are most comfortable with...

Which means that they no need of Universal translators.

They would only have universal translators as a pleasantry to the nearly assimilated, if at all.

Most nearly assimilated species would of course have their own universal translators but this still raises some curious points.

And many of those races, like our own, could have over 100 languages, dialects, and subtongues.

The Borg didn't have Seska (I could see her trying to take over the position of Borg Queen...).

What always surprised me is the Borg going after single passenger crafts, like that guy in Hope and Fear.
If the ship has interesting technology, who cares how many people are on it?

Borg training exercises. That explains all those crashed ships that were found.

BORED COLLECTIVE: We are the Bored. Fun and excitement are irrelevant. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile...

A Voyager fanfic parody I've been reading.

Re: What did/does the Borg say to the kazon whenever they cross paths?

You do remember that Arturis was a one man terrorist front?

Benig the last of his people his sole ambition in life was to destroy the Borg?

Subliminally, liminally and superliminally.

Goodness knows how many drones he'd been responsible for the sanctioning of?

ENEMY OF THE BORG.

Everyone else gets a benefit of the doubt period of grace where they're ignored, during which the Borg think that they're salesmen at a timeshare retreat and they're advertising to potential customers the benefits of assimilation.

Look but don't touch is the only rule the Borg have during one of their presentations.

I guess, Kazon scull structure makes neuronal implants impossible. Maybe they use only the bodies and transplant someone's head on it...

How did you know, they were never assimilated?

That they are nothing that contributes to the "evolution" of the Borg might indeed be reasonable to explain "nonassimilation".

Seska - who happened to be a Cardassian spy agent and 4 heavily armed carriers.

Realistically, if Kazon technology was outdated compared to Voyager (and depending by how much) - speculation indicated by several decades... then Voyager shouldn't have been taken as it was and could have went up against all 8 carriers seeing how Federation tecnology would evolve at an exponential rate in short periods of time (especially when you take into account 150 different races working together).
Granted... with Seska joining the Kazon, she already had some kind of knowledge of relatively advanced Cardassian and SF technology which she shared with Culluh (as indicated in the episode Alliances).

To Kazon credit, they had 4 heavily armed carriers going up against Voyager, which held on its own very well before that idiot Kazon blew himself up and impaired the ship's main power - otherwise, it would have probably been a victory for SF crew.

The writers took the Borg in a wrong direction by introducing the Queen (a limitation factor subject to making mistakes).

Aside from that... if the Borg encounter the Kazon, its likely they detect them from a large distance and simply avoid them.

Remember, the Borg wouldn't attack unless they see the opposing ship as a threat... so in that regard... they are less than a microscopic nuisance that couldn't do anything even if they wanted to (even Voyager had a tough time doing any damage most of the time and barely getting out of situations in one piece - only that was a more advanced ship).
